What Are Virtual Receptionists?
Virtual receptionists and chat services serve as the first point of contact for your organization, and as such, they’re a compelling asset. They solve issues before they arise and help you stay on top of things—even when you’re not at your desk.
Our Experts answer calls on behalf of the organizations they serve. Skilled, trained professionals our solutions provide award-winning customer service. They do everything from transferring and answering calls to recording messages, managing appointments, helpdesk support and FAQs, outbound calls, lead qualification, and more.
Virtual receptionists and chat services are an excellent way for organizations to reduce costs, free up staffing time, and allow more significant levels of efficiency. No other technology touches as many small businesses as virtual receptionists and chat services do. Yet, the idea is not a new one—in fact, call centers have been using virtual receptionists for years.
Do I Need a Virtual Receptionist?
Are you looking for a cost-effective way to expand your business without increasing the size of your team? Perhaps you’re looking to take a step into the future and streamline your customer experience. It would help if you had a receptionist when you don’t have time to train your employees to greet and help in-person customers. Your employees can always help with tight deadlines and deal with the phone, but you want to make sure your clients are getting their best possible attention in person.
Whether you need administrative support, event planning, or simply someone available to answer calls, our virtual receptionists are ready to help. Let us take care of all of your clients’ needs when they call in.
Why Would I Choose Call Experts Over Call Ruby?
When comparing Call Experts to other options in the industry, Ruby seems to be the most comparable.

It truly makes them stand out from others and gives off a more professional and trusted vibe.
After doing some research on how Ruby caters to their clients, many similarities were revealed. While it’s nice that people can compare us directly to Ruby, we know from experience that it helps more when you can provide a more personal approach. With this in mind, we’d like to take this opportunity to share a little more about ourselves and let you know what makes us different from the competition.
Call Experts provide a broad range of business-class customer experience and support solutions, but a few key differences set us apart from the rest. First, we have built an impeccable reputation for quality and award-winning services. Our solutions help your business improve results while minimizing the time you need to spend on customer support. Third, our clients view us as an extension of themselves as our team takes a consultative approach to address your needs.
